Our mission is to play pétanque and create an inclusive community of pétanque players. The club was founded by a vibrant group of friends who are passionate about pétanque. When they found themselves practicing every day and competing in tournaments, they realized that Sacramento needed a club dedicated to pétanque and thus established Sactown Petanque. They want to grow the sport and support pétanque players at all levels. Sactown Petanque is a member of the Federation of Petanque USA (FPUSA).
What is pétanque?
Petanque is an extremely fun sport that is easy to learn yet difficult to master; and no, it is not bocce. The game, in its current form, originated in France and is now played throughout the world. Many people play casually, but there are also many players who compete in regional, national, and international tournaments. Whether you are a casual or a competitive player, we welcome you to play with us. We have extra boules (balls) for new players. You will find that life is better with petanque and friends!
Let's meet up at the courts!
We play most evenings and weekends at Mather Sports Center (across the water tower) and sometimes at Florin Creek Park.
